I am licensed in Montana with 15 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, & depression. I have spent the past 38 years working with teens and families in one forum or another. I work with teen clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Marcia Tharp. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
Marcia was instrumental in helping my son transition to a new state, town, school! She is very knowledgeable and my son really like her, which is so important! We couldn’t have done it without her!
Marcia is a fantastic listener. She remembers even the most minute details of my life and incorporates them into our discussions
Marcia was able to pinpoint the core of my issues and still make me feel seen and heard.
Only a few sessions in with Marcia, and I've already learned new tools to manage my anxiety, as well as remember and relearn strategies that worked for me before. Looking forward to continue working with her.
Marcia is very professional and has an easy going style.
Lovely wise therapist. Very kind and knowledgeable. We decided that I have really specific needs from a therapist and so maybe a switch within teen counseling or possibly just someone outside of teencounseling.com if the specialty I’m looking for isn’t available.
Marcia does a wonderful job relating to teens and communicating with families and sharing helpful advice. We highly recommend her.
I have only had two sessions with Marcia, and I have never had a therapist before. Right away Marcia made me feel confrontable and not embarrassed to open up to her about my feelings. I am so glad that I am doing this and that I have Marcia. I think she is wonderful.
Marcia is very understanding and helpful in many ways. She is innovative with her tools and helped me alot. I was stuck in life and didn't know where to start when I started teencounseling.com. When I met Marcia I felt like she was understanding of my situation and gave me great advice and small homework sheets to start helping me feel better. I would recommend Marcia to others in the future. Thank you Marcia you have changed my life in so many ways.
Came very prepared for our appointment! She listened very well, I felt very heard and understood and she did a very good job navigating problems and breaking down/explaining her advice and why it may work for me!
It is very early in our journey to make any firm predictions, but I have connected with Marcia in a trusted and hopeful relationship. I feel she is invested in me and wants to see me succeed. She seems to understand what I am struggling with and has the insight and commitment to helping me overcome my challenges
Marcia is kind and honest. An impeccable listener and asks good questions.
Marcia has been great. She listens and makes sure I’m heard. She gives great advice. She helped me out with family issues.
Marcia is available always and is pushing me to be a better person and father
Marcia is kind, understanding and knowledgeable.
Marcia really listens to what you are saying and gives great feedback and understanding your way of thinking . She is personal and makes you feel comfortable. I appreciate the worksheet to focus on my needs.
Marcia is very attentive and supportive. She is exactly who I need in this moment to help me through some struggles.
